Summer Show line-up!

Hi Everyone!  This summer is starting off great - I've been lucky enough to be included in three awesome group exhibitions.  My previous blog post talked about The Grimshaw Gudewicz Gallery's 3rd Annual All Media show that opens this thursday from 6-8pm in Fall River and features my sculpture Slide.

In June my sculpture Pry (shown Below) will be shown at the Cambridge Art Association's North East Prize Show.  This is the third time I have shown at this annual exhibition and it is always absolutely filled with fantastic and inspiring art.  Not to be missed!  Show opens Friday June 7th from 5:30-7:30

And lastly, Dress-Up (bigfoot) will be shown at the Connecticut Academy of Fine Arts 101st Annual Exhibition at the Mystic Art Center in Mystic, Connecticut.   Opening is Thursday June 7th from 6-8pm

Its a great honor to be part of these shows.  Hopefully I'll see some of you there.

Spring weather! And an ART SHOW!

 Spring finally feels like its here, and as the semester winds down, I can look forward to an exciting opening at the Grimshaw Gudewicz Art Gallery in Fall River Mass.
Slide, my 3 dimentional take on the traditional tale "Iron Henry" will be displayed there from May 24th to July 7th.  Find out more about the show here:  http://bristolcc.edu/gallery/Current.html

SLIDE (detail)

While installing the my sculpture, I was lucky enough to get a sneak peak of the show, and the walls and pedastols are filled with impressive work (including a brand new and large Pen and Ink drawing by Eleanor Sabin)!  The opening is Thursday May 24th from 6-9pm.
